RIP Setup Question

User Badges:

I have a test network setup with the following subnet: 10.238.14.0; 10.238.46.0, and 10.238.122.0 all with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.


How would I setup RIP on all three routers I am using.

Router1 attached to 10.238.14.0

Router2 attached to 10.238.46.0

Router3 attached to 10.238.122.0



I have attached a PDF of the basic layout of the test network I am using.


Thanks for all the help.

Hi,


include all major networks under "router rip"

router rip

version 2

network 192.168.1.0

network 10.0.0.0

no auto-summary


Also check connectivity (ping) and your routing protocol environment (show ip protocols).

Hi,


RIP needs a network statement to tell it, which interfaces should take part in RIP. For all your routers the following config would achieve RIP routing between them:


router rip

version 2

network 10.0.0.0

no auto-summary


Comments:

1) the default is RIPv1 and to change this you need the version command; can be checked f.e. with "show ip protocols"

2) the network statement is always classful even with RIPv2 supporting VLSM

3) In your environment "no auto-summary" does not make a big difference. But just in case you want to include IP addresses from other major networks (class A, B, C) this command is recommended.

Ok, I have done that on all three routers but they will not route still.


sho ip route is similar to this on all three.


C 192.168.1.0 is directly connected, serial1

10.0.0.0 is subnetted, 1 subnets

C 10.238.14.0 is directly connected,Ethernet0


Is there something special that needs to be done is all 3 networks are 10.0.0.0 networks
